Helpdesk callers who say "It just went funny all of a sudden" and expect you to know what's wrong, presumably by figuring out telepathically what they did to it that they're not telling you.

How about the ones that claim to have done something "over and over" - but when you walk them through it it works? Or the ones who say their usename was ALWAYS xxxyyyzzz when the creation date on their account as aaabbbccc is five years ago?

Days that start out cold & teeming with rain, the change their minds and turn into heatwaves, just so that whatever I dress in, I'll either freeze or boil.
People who are clearly suffering from something both debilitating and highly infectious, but come in to work anyway. Then they do nothing useful, but sneeze all over everyone all day. Thanks for sharing!

Radio morning traffic reports delivered by chirpy announcers, so fast you can't figure out what's happening, e.g.:

"Injury-accident on I-40 at Northwest I-44 southbound, another on Northeast 25th westbound at South 23'rd street, a jack-knife truck at westbound 50'th and I-44 East, slowing at East 145'th and Northwest Express ..."

Ebay "snipers" having NEVER PLACED A BID for the previous six days, suddenly popping up in the LAST FOUR SECONDS to grab that Dreadnought for a measly two bits more than your maximum.

People who wiggle two fingers of each hand in the air to indicate they are quoting something -- WAY to make yourself look like a complete moron!

Love, Johnny

From the "wrong" side of the bar ...


Drinkers who, no matter how long they have been waiting to be served, say "Errrrrm ....", and who take five minutes to make up their mind what they want to drink, with everyone else waving tenners and apparently dying of thirst.

The customer who asks, "What flavour crisps do you have ?", makes you rummage through all the boxes and announce every obscure flavour before asking for "Plain".

The ones who say, "Oh, and a pint of Guinness, please", at the end of the order. Guinness takes several minutes to pour, it is like watching paint dry. Why couldn't they ask for it at the start of the order, so we can let it pour while pulling everything else.

The ones who disappear from the pub to answer their mobiles while you try and ask whether they want anything else, collect the money or proffer change.

And the ones who stand, oblivious to polite requests, blocking the hatch leading from behind the bar to in front of it. I can postpone collecting empty glasses, but I have to get down to the cellar to change barrels now. Just you stand there like a lump a bit longer, mate. I'll show you what being a prop forward is about.

Enough. Perhaps I won't need to do the job much longer.

KimC:

I often have to solve problems at work. I am often referred to as a trouble-shooter. Quite often people are sent to me for a "reality check".

What really gripes me is when people won't cop to making a mistake. Its pretty hard to solve a problem when people won't admit to their part of the problem. I can accept that people make mistakes but I have a very hard time with half-truths and cowards who are afraid they might get into trouble.

Oh, and don't even get me started on answerphones. I ask you, is it really necessary to put "Leave your name and number after the tone"??? My voicemail for my mobile just says, "It's an answerphone, you know what to do."

Work does my head in as well. They say "If you don't get such-and-such a percentage, you will be sacked". I've not done brilliantly recently but as far as I am aware they haven't sacked anyone!!

Hows about putting a pair of quotes in there with some little piece of descriptive text for us blind folks, and giveing extra info for folks who mouse over ...

they end up

In a list of a hundred songs, identified only by a number sequence, it gets VERY tedious to re-name them. And I dare not even start on pages of image files!!!

How about the jerk who has to speed up and pass you, just so he can make a left turn a quarter mile up the road? So now you have to stop behind him and wait for him to make his left, which apparently he couldn't make until he got in front of you, especially when there was nobody behind you.

Here is something that really concerns me when driving. It is now so common that I think some drivers must think it is part of the Highway Code:

Drivers waiting to turn from a side road into a more major road, who "nose" their cars further and further out into the oncoming traffic.

Some people don't even wait at all! I see them drive up and *immediately* start to nose out. They act as if it is their right to do this. Why not wait patiently and be safe ?

I hate it when you're out in the rain and you get stuck behind someone with a Brolly (umbrella) and you can't overtake them without getting poked in the eye with them or if someone's approaching you with one, they don't see you till the last moment and you have to serve to miss them and usually it's either into a puddle or out onto the road.

I hate it when you're in the pub & someone comes upto you & asks 'Is someone sitting on that seat' and points to an empty seat.

I hate when you get on a busy bus and people all stand huddled at the front, instead of moving down.

OK, granted, voting is important, but it's the elections for the new Student Union President and Vice President at the moment, and I've decided, on perfectly legitimate grounds (i.e I'm not at college next year!!) and I go up to ask people whether soemthing we've arranged is still on, and I get "Have you voted yet?" from one of the candidates. Fair enough, i explain, and she comes out with "So?? Vote anyway! For me!!!" I walked off. I was irritated as it was.

Oh, and another!! Small children on buses whose parents don't get them to modulate the volume level!! On the bus today as I was going through Whitley, a small child and it's mother got on. I was upstairs, the small child was downstairs, but I still got a headache from it. And then, more small, noisy little brats got on the bus as I was going to college!!!! It sounds like a zoo!!!!!!!

I don't mind small children, except when they're screaming for no reason. I felt like throwing this particular small child and it's associates on the bus out of the window. One of them even attempted to hit me. I nearly slapped the little brat!!!!!

Well. thankee, Tweezer, fir the complicment. Ahhh, hey, I ain't responsible fir the current mess. I brokered my vote amd voted fir Gore. Din't do no good... But the cureent guy had it so rigged that he was gonna win with 0% of the popular vote. Figure that one out!

Yeah, what I don't get is why does the US of A allow loosers to be crowned? Yeah, now that really makes mw mad! Real mad. Madder than Pee Wee Herman with a full box of popcorn! No, make that madder than Bush having been told that he was going to have to be retested for his GED... Now that's real mad. The boy is gonna have to hit the books purdy hard...

I am sick to f******g death of crybaby ranters that bear thar souls, weeping and gnashing thar teefez of everdanged slite wihich habz been portrayed upon ther worfless selfs. It iz the hite ob obsequitchusness in my homeless opium and shud be outlawed from this lannd. A persperous nation kinnever stand wif crybabys and catterwarblers allus makin' noise and genrely bitching incontinentnly. Thank you Boberdz fer this fine outlet fore my own deep seeded allusions. You are AOK wif me even ef you iz cursed wif being summat greenish tinctured..

People who are absolutely obsessed witht heir bodies as though they had no other source of identitiy than their meat-symbols. It's on a par withthose who identify completely with their cars, equally noxious habit.

Okay, I have a rant.

I am sick and tired of these women in my office and their damn DIETS! I can't eat this, I can't eat that... (Oh, please. You can eat whatever you want.) But I don't have time to exercise. (No, that isn't true, if you really wanted to, you would MAKE the time.)

If people want to diet, that's fine by me, that's their business. But I don't need a frickin play-by-play account!

End of rant.

Couldn't agree more, Fred. These gratuitous farters must be stopped. They are offensive, tedious, and not funny.

Cluin - I hate advertising just as much as you do. The best place to go where you can get away from it is Cuba (but not for long if Uncle Sam succeeds in taking over...). I really miss the days when you could rent a video and not have to see ads for 5 or 6 other totally undesirable movies before you get to see the one movie you actually paid to see. (You can FF through them, of course...you don't have that luxury when sitting in the movie theatre.)

People put up with this crap for two reasons. 1. They don't know any better. 2. There appears to be no escape.

Those are the same two reasons for why people put up with a political party system that doesn't really represent them, and a democracy that isn't real either.

People who don't think I'm as funny as I think I am. Idiots.

People who fart and laugh and joke about it. Those of us who don't fart are exposed to this insensitivity constantly, from childhood, and it's hurtful, and damaging to our self-esteem. It's been especially difficult for me, coming from a quiet non-farting family, and now married into a gregarious, operatic, farting clan.
